Evidence of 'Detonations' Discovered at Nord Stream Leak Site

As our civilization continues to hurtle in the direction of some sort of vast, global conflict, the battles that we shall witness won’t always be on the battlefield, per se.

For instance, this week’s decision by the Russian and Saudi-influenced OPEC to cut oil production moving forward, in spite of called from the US President to do the opposite.  Given what we know about the international cleave forming between free nations and autocratic ones, the decision can’t help but take on a bit of extra weight.

And then there’s the apparently deliberate sabotage of Russia Nord Stream 2 pipeline – a key piece of the Russian economic foundation.

The latest evidence from the site appears to show evidence of “detonations”.

An investigative team examining multiple explosions that rocked the Nord Stream pipeline network found Thursday that “detonations” damaged the lines as suspicions of sabotage remain high.

In what could have been the largest methane leak in history, four sites along the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 pipeline have been examined by Danish and Swedish authorities after first being discovered last week in the Baltic Sea off the coast of Denmark.

There was very little room for misinterpretation.

“There have been detonations near Nord Stream 1 and 2, within the Swedish economic zone, resulting in extensive damage to the gas pipelines,” Swedish security police said in a statement reported by Reuters.

The cause of these detonations has yet to be determined, but the blame game has already begun.

Both Moscow and Western nations have pointed fingers at one another over what some have described as intentional “sabotage.”

Nations like the U.K. and the Netherlands have responded to the leaks by increasing their maritime security presence in the North Sea “to reassure those working near the gas pipelines,” the U.K. Ministry of Defense said Monday.

NATO — which Sweden is in the midst of becoming a member of — over the weekend accused Russia of targeting the pipelines in “deliberate, reckless and irresponsible acts of sabotage.”

There have long been legitimate concerns regarding Russia’s willingness to employ false flag attacks to justify further military escalation, and it wouldn’t be out of the question to consider that a possibility here.
